According to a 2018 study by Bagley et al., training in VR can be just as effective at increasing the rate of calorie burn as a treadmill or bike, depending on the intensity of the game. Another 2020 study from the University of Minnesota Duluth found that riders often feel less tired or exhausted when cycling in VR than with a traditional bike.
